Kendrick Lamar has become a father for the second time.
The rapper surprised the world with the cover art for his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, which was released today (May 13th).
The image, which Renell Medrano photographed, depicts Kendrick wearing a crown of thorns while holding his eldest daughter.
His fiancée Whitney Alford cradles a baby in the background.
Kendrick Lamar drops lyrics revealing his son’s biblical name on the album’s third song, “Worldwide Steppers.”
Playing “Baby Shark” with my daughter/Watchin’ for sharks outside at the same time/Life as a protective father/I’d kill for her/My son Enoch is the part two/When I expire, my children will make higher valleys
The thoughtful track, which features Kodak Black on the intro, talks about Kendrick’s five years out of the public eye and how his children have helped keep him grounded despite his fame and fortune.
Neither Kendrick Lamar nor his representatives have yet to discuss his new child.
Kendrick and Whitney reportedly welcomed their first child, a daughter, in July 2019. The pair were engaged in 2015.
